New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith posted two catches for 27 yards on two targets in Week 5 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Smith had a touchdown last week, but it appears rookie Mac Jones has developed a better rapport with the other tight end, Hunter Henry. Smith isn't worth using outside of deeper fantasy leagues at the moment. The Patriots host the Cowboys in Week 6.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith caught three passes for 14 yards and a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Smith got five looks, which isn't bad, but despite the score he's not turning it into much production, and the Pats aren't deploying the two-tight end formation as much as many expected. Smith hasn't been getting nearly as many snaps as Hunter Henry this year and is only worth owning in the deepest of leagues.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith caught one of six targets for four yards in Week 3, vs. the New Orleans Saints, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Converting one of six looks is, well, never a good look. Fantasy footballers need more consistency, but sometimes all we really want is to see there's enough of an opportunity, which should come in droves vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. That said, play Smith at your own risk in any setting.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith caught four passes for 28 yards against the New York Jets in Week 2. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Smith has caught nine of his 10 targets this season but has only 70 yards over the first two games. He should post better numbers once Mac Jones is more comfortable but is a risky option for fantasy players next week.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hip) is officially active for the Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Smith should have an important role in the passing game this week and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Smith was able to do some things over the last two practices and probably will be able to play. He should have some success against the New York Jets and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if Smith is in any danger of missing the Week 2 game. He caught all five of his targets in Week 1 and finished with 42 yards. He probably will see a handful of targets against the New York Jets and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith caught five passes for 42 yards against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Sept. 12. Smith also ran the ball once for six yards.
Huddle Up: Smith outpaced fellow newcomer Hunter Henry, but that could easily fluctuate throughout the season as long as both of them are healthy. As with Henry, Smith has some low-end TE1 potential, but he'd be a bit of a risky play.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle during practice Sunday, Aug. 15, but it is not believed to be a serious injury.
Huddle Up: Smith probably will miss a few days of practice but does not appear to be in danger of missing any regular season games. He likely will be an important part in the passing game for the Patriots after receiving a lucrative contract and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end.

New England Patriots TE Jonnu Smith (hamstring) will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Smith will team with Hunter Henry as a dynamic duo, but they'll offset each other in fantasy. Peg both as low-end TE1s.
